Celebrate one of the greatest folk singers of all time with this unique concert dedicated to his songs of freedom, social justice and against inequality.

In a world where bigotry, racism, violence and inequality are seemingly on the rise, this show, built around Woody’s songs, is a timely reminder of the universal power of great folk music to celebrate humanity and to give voice to the struggles of ordinary people for a better world.

Led by the musical prowess of Bruce Hearn (from Melbourne ska legends, Strange Tenants) & The Machinists, Woody Guthrie: Songs of Freedom features icons of Australia’s folk/roots music scene, including Mic Conway (Captain Matchbox), Margret Roadnight, Jan Wositzky (Bushwhackers), Kavisha Mazzella and the Tasmanian Grassroots Union Choir. And the legendary ERIC BOGLE who  is a Scottish folk singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Scotland, he emigrated to Australia at the age of 25, to settle near Adelaide, South Australia. Bogle's songs have covered a variety of topics, and have been performed by many artists. Two of his best known songs are "No Man's Land" (or "The Green Fields of France") and "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda", with the latter named one of the APRA Top 30 Australian songs in 2001, as part of the celebrations for the Australasian Performing Right Association's 75th anniversary.

Help keep the flame alive and experience the power of Woody’s music, with his messages as relevant in today’s political climate as they were when he first wrote them back in the 30s and 40s.
